    Retail Firearms Inspector Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Thornton, CO

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cabela's (Thornton, CO) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position on a Thursday. Received a phone call the next day - Friday. During a brief phone interview, I was told about the job duties and responsibilities, and I gave a brief background regarding my work history and firearms knowledge/certifications/training. I was then invited to come to the store on Monday for an in-person interview.

    I arrived at the Cabella's store a few minutes early and was informed that the person I was scheduled to meet with had not yet checked in to work. I was sent to the back firearms counter to ask to have him paged, but he never responded nor checked in. Over the next hour and a half, the nice staff attempted to reach him several times, with no response. I finally gave up waiting and told them I was leaving.

    I had hoped to hear back later or the next day that an unforeseen emergency had arisen, but never heard back from anyone!
